   Update to the Process for Selection of Trustees for the IETF Trust
                    draft-ietf-iasa2-trust-update-02

Abstract

   This memo updates the process for selection of trustees for the IETF
   Trust.  Previously, the Internet Administrative Oversight Committee
   (IAOC) members also acted as trustees, but the IAOC has been
   eliminated as part of an update of the structure of the Internet
   Administrative Support Activity (IASA).  This memo specifies that the
   trustees shall be selected separately.

   This memo updates RFCs 4071 and 4371 with regards to the selection of
   trustees.  All other aspects of the IETF Trust remain as they are
   today.

1.  Introduction

   This memo updates the process for selection of trustees for the IETF
   Trust.  Previously, the Internet Administrative Oversight Committee
   (IAOC) members also acted as trustees, but the IAOC has been
   eliminated as part of an update of the structure of the Internet
   Administrative Support Activity (IASA).  This memo specifies that the
   trustees shall be selected separately.

   This memo updates RFCs 4071 and 4371 with regards to the selection of
   trustees.  All other aspects of the IETF Trust remain as they are
   today.

   For a discussion of why this change is needed and a rationale for
   these specific changes, see [I-D.ietf-iasa2-trust-rationale].

2.  Selection of Trustees

   This document revises the original Trustee selection procedures
   defined in [RFC4071] and [RFC4371], to eliminate the requirement that
   trustees be drawn from the members of the IAOC.

   In this newly revised IETF Trust structure, there will be five
   Trustees.  Three shall be appointed by the IETF Nominating Committee
   (NomCom) and confirmed by the Internet Engineering Steering Group
   (IESG), one shall be appointed by the IESG, and one shall be
   appointed by the Internet Society (ISOC) Board of Trustees.  The

   appointments by the IESG and ISOC Board of Trustees do not require
   confirmation.

   The IETF Trust Chair informs the nominating committee of the Trustee
   positions to be reviewed.  The IETF Trust will provide a summary of
